Surprise Gift Pouches

Have you ever had a Kinder Surprise?  They are so fun!  Inside the chocolate egg you will find a surprise toy.    
Kinder Surprises can be a little pricey and difficult to get your hands on.  Surprise gift pouches are similar to the Kinder Surprise because you never know what's in the pouch until you open it up.  This is a great way to give gifts/surprises for any occasion!  You can give them as a party favor, stocking stuffer, thank you card, gift, and the list goes on and on.  I made a variety of surprise gift pouches to send to my brother.

1. ) Put two pieces of paper together and cut out a shape.  You can use a paper grocery bag, decorative paper, or wrapping paper.  

 2. Sew around the edge of the paper.

 3. Leave space!  When sewing, stop before you get to the end so you are able to put your candy or item into the pouch and then finish sewing.

Be creative with your pouches!
* Make a variety of shapes:
           -hearts, stars, triangles, rectangles, Christmas tree, stocking, pumpkin, clover, balloon.
* Use bright colors of thread
* Use fun sissors

Below are a variety of ways to make surprise gift pouches:

Thank you card
Sew a smaller piece of paper onto a larger piece of paper and fill it with candy.  
Then write a thank you note on the back.  

Envelope Pouch
Sew an envelope so that it is easier to open up.

Three surprises in one!
